2019/20 Group Photo

Physicists for Inclusion in Science (“PhIS”, pronounced “fizz”) grew out the “Women in Physics” group. We support members of underrepresented groups as they pursue their careers. The group meets several times a term for discussion and to organize events and activities. The group consists of students, faculty and staff in the Physics department, alumni, and other physicists on campus or in the community.

PhIS is still running but with a social distancing model! How can we help you during these trying times?

If you have an idea for a project, event, or anything else that you want to see PhIS take on, we’d love to hear from you! Please follow this link to our poll for sharing your ideas with us.

Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP)

At CUWiP, budding physicists will experience a professional conference, learn about graduate school and professions in physics, and share invaluable experiences, advice, and ideas with other women.
Oregon State University hosted CUWiP in 2016 and PhIS was the team behind holding the conference. We also encourage member to attend future conferences and have helped assist them in that effort.
